[audio]E100 Week 8:The Fall of Israel - Dr Tim Bulkeley
"The fall of Israel" is a theological (not historical) title. This five covers almost the whole history of the Israelite kingdoms from David to the destruction of Jerusalem. The Deuteronomistic History (Joshua-Kings) from which they all come (cf. remarks on Judges) tell the story with the end in view, one important goal of these books is to explain the fall of Jerusalem and the exile. So this is a good selection to understand what is going on: 1...

[audio]E100-37: 1 Kings 2:1 - 3:28: The great and wise king Solomon - Dr Tim Bulkeley
In just two chapters we get some of the most beautiful and inspiring, and some of the grubbiest and most bloodthirsty stories in the Bible. It is no wonder that telling the stories of David (with Saul and Solomon and perhaps the rest) as a serial, like a soap opera has the audience panting for more :) In this podcast I'll again point to clues to how we can, and (often of more use) how we should NOT "read" Bible stories...

[audio]E100-38: 1 Kings 8:1 - 9:9: Solomon and the temple - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Solomon's prayer understands that Yahweh is a different God, the gods (like Ba'al and his crowd) lived in the sky รข and lanced thunderbolts down on people they disliked - heaven/sky was like the earth only bigger and better. When Yuri Gagarin became the first human in space Russian leader Nikita Khrushchev said "Gagarin flew into space, but didn't see any God there". Solomon's prayer sees the stupidity of Krushchev - how could the creator of universes be see from a measly 302Kms from earth? But...

[audio]E100-40: 2 Kings 25:1 - 25:30: The holy city falls - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Today's is a grim reading. But such brutality was not unusual in the Ancient Near East. The Assyrians, for example, when they captured the Judean city of Lachish after a siege in 701BC impaled the surviving leaders outside the city, and left a mass grave of 1,500 people (mainly women and children). Despite what one might even see as gentle treatment of the city by the Babylonians in 586, the fall of Jesusalem marked Hebrew thought deeply because it was God's city, their last toehold of political...

[audio]E100-39: 1 Kings 16:29 - 19:18: The big fight at Mt Carmel - Dr Tim Bulkeley
Since this is a gripping, but well-known, story what I'll try to do in this podcast is show you how a bit of context (see here for more on context and understanding the Bible). I'll also tell you God's two nicknames, in some religious traditions knowing all a god's names is really important, in Hinduism the god Vishnu has 1,000 names, in Islam there is a tradition that God has 99 names. Yahweh the God the Bible talks about has kicknames as well as formal names! A couple of photos to illustrate t...
